Ghee (also known as Ghritham) is clarified butter, an ingredient used in India for thousands of years. Ghee has gained popularity in the west due to the fact it is known as a healthy medium for cooking as compared to oils. In Ayurveda, ghee is considered good not just for cooking food, but also to consume as a health supplement. Ayurvedic ghee or herbal ghee is prepared by infusing pure ghee prepared from cow’s milk with medicinal herbs. This Ayurvedic Ghritham offers multiple health benefits.

About Ghritham

Ghee is good for digestion and nourishes the tissues of the body. The Ayurvedic benefits of ghee are vast, making it a wellness product to boost overall health. Ghee treatment in Ayurveda helps to improve digestive powers. Ayurveda uses the concept of Agni or digestive fire to explain the working of the digestive system. If Agni is weak, then it creates toxins (known as Ama). When Agni is strong, it strengthens Ojas (the substance that boosts immunity).

The health benefits of ghee in Ayurveda are a result of how it strengthens the digestive fire. This helps in improving immunity and enhances vitality. Ghee and Ayurveda have a close link and have been used for many centuries. Ayurvedic medicated ghee is used as a supplement to be consumed daily. Ghee in Ayurvedic medicine can be used for massage in a treatment known as Panchakarma. There are different types of ghee in Ayurveda with the main ones being ghee prepared from cow’s milk or from buffalo’s milk. Traditionally, ghee made from cow’s milk is preferred for preparing wellness products.
